With ultra-Orthodox protests against mask-wearing in New York, and election anxiety nationwide, Erin “Snuffy” Ben-Moche and Esther “Gal Gadot” Kustanowitz have a lot on their plate. Finally, Erin (and HBOMax subscribers) received the restaged, “Hartsfield’s Landing” episode of the “West Wing.” The Josiah Bartlet megafan shares her reactions and Esther Debbie Downers it with a dose of realism. Eventually, the Bagels discuss Israeli TV shows like “Tehran” on AppleTV+ and the forthcoming “Valley of Tears” on HBO;the prospect of Wonder-Woman-and-Representative-of-Israel-in-Hollywood Gal Gadot as Cleopatra launches a representation conversation; and why “Shtisel” gets all the love and “Fauda” gets criticised. Plus, our question of the week: “Are you a TV binger, or a series savorer?”. Grab a bag of Twizzlers (or Red Vines, if you must) as the co-hosts revisit the value of weekly episode releases over streaming a series in one sitting.
